Safety is paramount where gas is concerned, and with the threat of Carbon Monoxide poisoning within homes, it has become a legal requirement that any gas installation, maintenance or repair work be carried out by a CORGI registered engineer.
Carbon Monoxide kills, and typically seeps into your home via your boiler, gas heater or cooker. It is impossible to see or smell making it hard to detect, therefore taking risks with who you enlist to maintain and repair such appliances will compromise your safety.
A CORGI registered engineer will bring you peace of mind, as CORGI is the UK’s authority on gas safety. A CORGI badge is a guarantee of quality, and its engineers provide nothing less than an expert, quality, and safe service.
CORGI Is The UK’s Authority On Gas Safety
With over 30 year’s experience, CORGI was founded to protect households from unsafe gas installations. Therefore enlisting a CORGI registered engineer will ensure that any repair, maintenance or advice delivered is safe, competent, and of the highest standard.
The CORGI Standard Means:
Be Certain Your Engineer Is CORGI Registered
To keep safe, it is recommended that you ensure any engineer you call out to fix your broken boiler or central heating is fully CORGI qualified. As it’s now illegal for anyone other than a CORGI registered professional to install, fix or maintain any gas appliance, you must either check their credentials beforehand, or use a highly reputable energy provider such as British Gas who employ only CORGI engineers to service their customers with boiler repair and general gas maintenance.
CORGI will help you find a local engineer. With over 55,000 CORGI registered gas installation businesses in the UK, it should not be too difficult to find a CORGI installer local to you. All CORGI engineers carry an ID Card, and customers should always ask to see it prior to any work taking place. To check if the ID Card is valid, customers can use the CORGI website check an installer service.
